ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A man convicted for conspiring to distribute hundreds of pounds of cocaine in South Georgia was sentenced in Albany Federal Court Wednesday.

Francisco "Frankie" Molina was sentenced to 11 and a half years in prison after he previously pleaded guilty to conspiring with a number of South Georgia residents to distribute cocaine and marijuana.

The investigation revealed that Molina regularly supplied cocaine and marijuana for distribution in the Mitchell County area.

They also learned that in January 2010, a package weighing over 600 pounds had been delivered to an address in Camilla.

The package, originating in Texas, was labeled as agricultural irrigation parts.

Court documents showed Molina shipped that package and received money via Western Union and Money Gram as payment for it.

The court previously accepted pleas and sentenced eighteen people related to Molina's case as well.
